Red Light SO FAST N SILENT! Now there are Helicopters flying all over the place?

I was sitting in my hot tub with a friend and we thought we saw a shooting star but then it was still there and going so fast yet not fading at all, it continued towards the east here in Downtown Boise Idaho and then suddenly it fled off to the south so fast that we have never seen anything like it.

Here is the kicker, there are helicopters flying all over the same pattern that the UFO had flown and have been going in circles all night now for 3 hours. I never EVER hear them this late over here near Hyde park. Something is clearly going on, the choppers seem to keep going in the SAME EXACT pattern as the AMBER LIGHT we saw.

The light was LARGE, it seemed akin to the afterburner from a fighter jet, but NO SOUND and the speed was so fast that if it had been a jet of any kind it would have broken the sound barrier. I use to live next to "top gun" in San Diego CA, so I am quite familiar with the sounds and speed of the f-14 and other fighter jets. This was NOTHING like those at all.

I am not one to write in to a UFO sight, and to be honest I would not be doing it had I not noticed these helicopters flying all over the place tonight. I have gone out 3 times now to see over 5 choppers flying around and again EXACTLY where we saw the UFO.

This is NOT the 1st time I have seen something like this, back in 1995 I was in Ocotillo Wells and 7 of us saw a formation of 9 lights that hovered in the sky for 35 min, BRIGHT, and silent. We at one point thought they were flares but they never dropped from the sky. Having been there only at night at that point we figured there were mountains and some lights were on top of them, however when we woke the next morning, there were no mountains in sight.

Whatever we saw tonight has sparked the interest of the helicopters.

I just looked up other peoples sightings in the area and here is what I found and it seems this is NOT the 1st time.

I was not able to find anything on your site dealing with Boise Idaho?
